2014 Online presentations service Prezi secures $57M


Cloud presentation platform Prezi that has been gradually eating away at Microsoft’s Powerpoint market share for the last few years, has secured a $57 million growth investment. Prezi is cloud-based, meaning you can present from your browser, desktop, iPad, or iPhone and always have the latest version of your work at your fingertips. Prezi’s software is unusual because the presentations it produces aren’t the usual lists of bullet points. They are based on images and require their creators to tell a story, which helps an audience absorb and remember the information. The service already has 50 million users. Underlying Prezi’s success to date has been its growing reputation amongst businesses which are using it to persuade clients, woo customers and train internally. Prezi has thus won fans at companies such as Salesforce, Lufthansa, Marriott and IBM.



2011 Prezi+iPad - ideal presentations at conferences


We continue to find new interesting ways of how iPad (and other tablets) can be used in the Enterprise. We have already mentioned that for executives and sales persons who often go to business meetings iPad can serve as a cool accessory to impress the client. But frankly speaking, nobody will demonstrate presentations on the iPad at these business meetings. Projector or laptop with bigger screen are much more appropriate for this case. But at different exhibitions and conferences, where you can meet many partners and customers, iPad - is an ideal solution to show presentation on the go. Besides, now the spectacular presentation tool has appeared - Prezi for iPad. We have already reviewed Prezi - it's one of the most original and exciting services for online presentations. And on the iPad it looks impressive. It's interesting that presentations are not saved on the tablet, but broadcasted from the Internet. Besides this first version doesn't support video, animation and PDF files. It also doesn't allow to edit presentations - only to demonstrate.



2009 Prezi - fresh look at the Web presentations

Prezi
When it comes to presentations, the minimalist style, that is usually more appropriate to business applications - not works so fine. Because you want your audience (potential customers) to say "WOW!". That's why besides the classic presentation apps, such as PowerPoint or Google Presentations, there is number of quite succesful alternative services such as SlideRocket with its incredible flash effects or Second Life with its virtual 3D auditories. The Hungarian start-up Prezi also belongs to this group. It has already gathered a lot of excited reviews, awards and investments. It's coolest feature is that the entire presentation is placed on one large virtual board, and its demonstration - is navigation on this board with dynamic scaling.

You can add and position text, media content and design elements on this board. Then you create a route - connect the elements in the order (and scale) you want them to display. However, during the presentation you can easily change the route and the scale and freely browse the presentation. All this looks very dynamic and effective.

Presentations can be demonstrated on the Internet or download it on your laptop and show offline. And you can create presentations in online account or in a special desktop application (available only in paid accounts). There are also collaboration features - you can share presentations with co-workers.

Free account provides 100 MB disk space and allows to create only public presentations. Paid subscription costs $59 per month.
